Mic 1:4 The mountains will melt under Him And the valleys will be split, Like wax before the fire, Like water poured down a steep place.

Mic 1:6 For I will make Samaria a heap of ruins in the open country, Planting places for a vineyard. I will pour her stones down into the valley And will lay bare her foundations.
Mic 1:7 All of her idols will be smashed, All of her earnings will be burned with fire And all of her images I will make desolate, For she collected them from a harlot's earnings, And to the earnings of a harlot they will return.
Mic 1:8 Because of this I must lament and wail, I must go barefoot and naked; I must make a lament like the jackals And a mourning like the ostriches.
Mic 1:9 For her wound is incurable, For it has come to Judah; It has reached the gate of my people, Even to Jerusalem.
Mic 1:10 Tell it not in Gath, Weep not at all. At Beth-le-aphrah roll yourself in the dust.
Mic 1:11 Go on your way, inhabitant of Shaphir, in shameful nakedness. The inhabitant of Zaanan does not escape. The lamentation of Beth-ezel." He will take from you its support."
Mic 1:12 For the inhabitant of Maroth Becomes weak waiting for good, Because a calamity has come down from the Lord To the gate of Jerusalem.
Mic 1:13 Harness the chariot to the team of horses, O inhabitant of Lachish" She was the beginning of sin To the daughter of Zion" Because in you were found The rebellious acts of Israel.
Mic 1:14 Therefore you will give parting gifts On behalf of Moresheth-gath; The houses of Achzib will become a deception To the kings of Israel.
Mic 1:15 Moreover, I will bring on you The one who takes possession, O inhabitant of Mareshah. The glory of Israel will enter Adullam.
Mic 1:16 Make yourself bald and cut off your hair, Because of the children of your delight; Extend your baldness like the eagle, For they will go from you into exile.
